Aleix Vidal: Liverpool link likely to come to nothing

Manchester United and Liverpool are among the clubs who have begun talks to sign a Barcelona man in January, according to a report.

Aleix Vidal could be set for a move to the Premier League this month after his agent opened talks with the aforementioned duo, as well as Man City and Everton, reports Spanish outlet Estadio Deportivo.

The Catalan club are apparently willing to accept a ‘modest’ transfer sum for the 28-year-old after they shelled out a British record £142million in the deal to bring Philippe Coutinho to the Camp Nou.

The former Sevilla man can play on the right side or in central midfield, and his versatility would be useful for all four clubs.

Vidal has also been linked with a move to Serie A in recent weeks, with both Milan clubs reportedly showing an interest.
